It’s been six years since I last upgraded my SLR. That’s right. I bought my Canon 40D in the summer of 2008. A couple years ago I was contemplating an upgrade (an upgrade that never happened) and I was pondering the idea of moving up a category to the Canon 6D, a choice that surprisingly I think I’d still make today if I were standing at the counter of a camera shop with a mitt-full of cash: Full frame sensor, a wider ISO range with much improved noise reduction, a faster FPS rate, HD-video and some other nifty gimmicky add-ons like Wi-Fi upload and control and GPS-based geo-tagging. It’s been lurking on my mind because we’ve got a pretty awesome trip planned for sometime this summer –exact details withheld– and I’ve got about just the right amount of time to learn a new camera and put it through the paces before I take it on an epic vacation where I would be depending on it day-to-day. Are there any other options (preferably in the Canon family) I should be pondering?
